Garrard & Co (formerly Asprey & Garrard) is a luxury jewellery and silver company founded in London in 1735. Its current base is at Albemarle Street in Mayfair, London with a presence in Tokyo, New York, Dubai, Moscow and Hong Kong. It was the Crown Jeweller of the UK, charged with the upkeep of the British Crown Jewels, 1843-2007. The company that was to become Garrard was founded by George Wickes (1698–1761), who entered his mark in Goldsmith's in 1722. Wickes set up business in Threadneedle Street in the City of London in 1722; the company moved to Panton Street off Haymarket in central London in 1735 as a goldsmith and provider of jewellery and other luxury items to aristocratic patrons.
